Today Lionsgate UK has released the trailer for McQueen, a Film by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui.
“McQueen” is an intimate portrait of Alexander [Lee] McQueen’s own personal and professional world. It is a film which celebrates a radical and mesmerizing genius of profound influence and shows his rags-to-riches story as a modern-day fairy tale laced with the gothic.
As a self-described “unremarkable” working-class guy from East London, he harnessed his demons and went on to become one of the most iconic artists of the century.
Portraying his life from his debut collection through to the tragedy of his premature death, “McQueen” is a film that evokes Lee McQueen’s unique vision, originality and sense of humour. captured in never-before-seen home movies, audio tapes and “behind-the-scenes” footage shot throughout his career.
The material is stitched together with deeply personal interviews with close family, friends and collaborators and cinematic original material that takes us on a journey into McQueen’s mind.
Having watched the trailer we feel the film will be much like going to watch a McQueen show, you will leave with a multitude of emotions but ultimately you will feel inspired by all that he achieved.
The #McQueenFilm will be in Cinemas from June 8th.
